Dhaka to be turned new city, if elected: Taposh
Awami League Mayor candidate for the Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) Barrister Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh today said he would work for crafting ‘a new city’ if he is elected in the January 30 polls.
“If I am elected, I along with the Dhaka North City Corporation Mayor and DSCC’s former Mayor Sayeed Khokon will work together aiming to build a new Dhaka”, said Barrister Taposh after the announcement of his name as the ruling party candidate for the DSCC polls at party president’s Dhanmondi political office here.
Since the population of the city has increased over the years, the people are not getting their desired services from the city corporation, he said, adding that “Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina split the Dhaka city corporation into two independent city corporations after taking these problems into account.”
Under the situation, Taposh said, “I have decided to take part in the city polls with a target to resolve these problems.”
Referring to the tragic fire incident in the old city, he said such incidents are frequently taking place in the city as all modes of transport are plying the same narrow roads in the old city. “I want to make a 30-year master plan ahead of 2041”, he added.
